First Pitch Seminars: Ever Been?

Postby Inukchuk » Sat Mar 03, 2012 7:50 pm

So I saw that Ron Shandler would be doing a 3 hour fantasy seminar near Boston tomorrow. It was cheap enough ($40) so I signed up, and I'm pretty jazzed to see what it's all about. Anyone ever been to one of these things before? Are they any good?

Somebody went last year and gave an overview about what everybody said. The only thing I remember was that someone stated that Adam Lind was finished. Turns out they were right. Seems like it'd be interesting to attend, and for only $40 why not? If it was in Toronto I'd probably go.

This probably would have seen a lot more activity if it was in Leftovers.

It was very cool, I thought. 3 hours of hardcore stuff. I was a bit leery that it might be a lot of obvious information, but it definitely catered to very deep leagues. Most discussion involved players outside the top 200 and their underlying skill sets. There was a lot of focus on breakout candidates, but not the obvious ones that it seems everyone is hyping.

A few names that stuck out to me, just to give you an idea:

Everth Cabrera
Marco Estrada
Gerardo Parra
Brad Brach
Lance Lynn
Matt Antonelli
Brett Pill
Brandon Allen
Alexi Casilla
Jon Niese
Joey Devine

Oh, and they were selling forecasters there for ten bucks. ;-D
